Get your Chevy Summer Ready!
Forget Nebraska winters, summers can bring the heat to Sarpy County, including Bellevue and surrounding areas. Hot weather means it is time to think about driving in the heat and how that affects your car or truck before you hit the road for all your summer adventures. Beardmore Chevrolet recommends having your vehicle inspected by a certified service technician one to two weeks before your trip to so you have a piece of mind and don't get stranded by car issues.
Common car issues during the summer can include coolant issues, radiator leakage and the air conditioner dying.
Chances are that you weren't cranking the air conditioning during the cold winter months. The system may need new filters, a cleaning, or a re-charging. If you're not a do-it-yourselfer, the service team at Beardmore Chevrolet is available to making sure you remain comfortable on the road with a working A/C system.
Check Your Fluids
You can save yourself a lot of hassle in the hot-weather months by monitoring your car's fluids. Fluids that you should check include:
- Coolant: This is the big one. If your coolant/antifreeze level is too low, it can cause overheating.
- Motor oil
- Transmission fluid
- Brake fluid
- Power-steering fluid
- Windshield wiper fluid
Monitor Tire Pressure
A freezing winter can take a toll on your tires. If you use one set of tires year-round, now is a good time to bring your car in for a tire rotation, a check on the tread, and to ensure that they're inflated properly. If it turns out that your tires need to be replaced, we can help you choose tires that suit your vehicle and are built to last.
Replace Your Battery
If your car has an old battery, extreme summer heat can spell trouble. To avoid expensive repairs, it's worth having your car's battery tested, or even replaced. Getting a new battery altogether will cost you less than it would to have a dead battery serviced if your car breaks down.
